Your mom was the absolute sweetest! Our sympathy to your family.

As a neighbor on Old Boston Road, Mrs. Parker brightened many an ordinary day as she gifted us with handmade cards, ornamental eggs and home baked goodies. I treasure her recipe for "buckeyes", so carefully printed with her artistic hand. Her thoughtfulness was beyond measure.
